When Sylvanas Windrunner shatters the veil between worlds, you'll be leaving Azeroth behind—at least for a time. But before you journey to the Shadowlands, you may want to spend your remaining moments in the mortal realms seeking out a few rewards that will no longer be obtainable (or will be more difficult to acquire) in the next expansion.Read on for the full list, and make sure to collect everything you've been eyeing before time runs out.
Going Away with Shadowlands Launch
How to Claim Your Dragon
When Azeroth's heroes depart for the Shadowlands, the last vestiges of N'Zoth the Corruptor
will fade away—and the “Lost Flight
” quest, which rewards the Uncorrupted Voidwing
mount, will vanish along with him. To earn:
Enter the raid Ny'alotha, the Waking City on Heroic difficulty and defeat N'Zoth the Corruptor
. You'll want to be around 445 item level and be accompanied by at least 15 others in gear of similar quality to take down the Old God.Upon defeating N'Zoth, you'll loot an item that grants you the “Lost Flight
” quest, which can be turned in for your Uncorrupted Voidwing
.You can further prepare for the climatic final boss in Battle of Azeroth
by watching the N'Zoth the Corruptor FatbossTV guide. TIP: Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve
is a must-have for all members of your raid group when fighting N'Zoth the Corruptor
. Those without the legendary cloak will succumb to an instant mind-control mechanic, becoming a Servant of N'Zoth
who will ravage your raid. Follow our guide to obtain your legendary cloak.
If you need aid, some fellow heroes in the community are willing to help those who want to earn their Uncorrupted Voidwing. Check out the list below, and read their guidelines to find out how to participate.
Your Heart Only for AzerothThe Heart of Azeroth
, the legendary necklace you've kept close to your own hearts, derives its power from your connection to Azeroth. You'll find that connection weakens when you step foot into areas or instances not introduced in Battle for Azeroth
, severing features that derive power from it—Essences
and Azerite Traits
. The potency of these powers will reactivate whenever you return to eligible regions and instances (e.g. Horrific Vision
Your Essences Preferences
If you're trying to collect the prestigious title Azeroth's Champion, be sure to add earning the achievement Phenomenal Cosmic Power to your list of things to do, as all Rank 4 Essences can no longer be earned once Shadowlands strikes.To earn:
Infuse the Heart of Azeroth with all available Essences from the Rise of Azshara update for any role at Rank 4. Refer to Wowhead's comprehensive Essence collection guide
to get started!
Going Away with Shadowlands Pre-patch
The prestige achievement Battle for Azeroth Keystone Master: Season Four
and its reward the Awakened Mindborer
mount will only be available to earn prior to the release of Shadowlands
. To earn the achievement and mount, you must complete all Battle for Azeroth Season Four dungeons at Mythic Level 15 or higher, within the time limit. Unsure of your current progress? See which Keystones you need to complete by checking your progress in the Mythic Keystone
section in the Group Finder (default hotkey: i).
Just like the real dinosaurs that once walked our own earth, the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur
's days in Azeroth are numbered. Once the Shadowlands pre-patch goes live, the shady vendors Talutu
and Tricky Nick
will cease selling it, and the accompanying Feat of Strength Conspicuous Consumption
will no longer be obtainable. The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur mount will then trek from its Battle for Azeroth
vendors to the Black Market Auction House where it can show up occasionally as a purchasable mount for players to bid on.To earn:
Purchase for 5,000,000 gold from Talutu
in Grand Bazaar
(Horde) or Tricky Nick
in Hook Point
With the Black Empire turned to ash, the Old Gods' power of Corruption will wither away once the Shadowlands
pre-patch goes live. Your Corruption-tainted items will shed away their dark power, leaving your gear in its pure form. With Corruption no longer a threat, the Corruption Resistance found on certain Essences and your legendary cloak will also dissipate.
One of the more challenging achievements to arise in Visions of N'Zoth—Mad World
—will no longer be acquirable once the pre-patch goes live. If you successfully earn the Feat of Strength, you'll be granted a fitting title, “the Faceless One
Complete all objectives in the Horrific Visions of Stormwind and Orgrimmar in a single visit while not in a party and with all 5 Faceless Masks active.
Changing of the Seasons
The current PvP Season will end with the pre-patch, taking with it all of the usual earnable rewards for eligible players who end the season in the top 0.1% of the 3v3 arena ladder. To commemorate this feat, these elite players will earn the Corrupted Gladiator title, Corrupted Gladiator's Tabard
, and the Corrupted Gladiator mount.
Top of the Class
Just as with previous raids at the end of an expansion, the Ahead of the Curve
and Cutting Edge
achievements for defeating N'Zoth the Corruptor on Heroic and Mythic difficulties will go away at the beginning of pre-patch. In addition to earning limited-time achievements, you'll also get your Uncorrupted Voidwing
and—for those seeking to get Cutting Edge
—have a chance to get the Ny'alotha Allseer
mount for defeating N'Zoth on Mythic difficulty.
Some mounts and achievements will become more difficult to acquire due to drop rates changing or requirements going away with Shadowlands.
When you sail away from Battle for Azeroth
, the current guaranteed drop rate for the Glacial Tidestorm
and Ny'alotha Allseer
mounts will significantly decrease, and the amount of dropped mounts will decrease to one (currently two). Glacial Tidestorm:
Defeat Mythic Lady Jaina Proudmoore in Battle of Dazar'alor on Mythic difficulty. You'll need 20 players total to enter the raid, and it's recommended that all players are 415 item level or higher. You can further prepare for Mythic Lady Jaina Proudmoore by watching the Mythic Lady Jaina Proudmoore FatbossTV guide. Ny'alotha Allseer:
Defeat Mythic N'Zoth the Corruptor in Ny'alotha, the Waking City on Mythic difficulty. You'll need 20 players total to enter the raid, and it's recommended that all players are 470 item level or higher. You can further prepare for Mythic N'Zoth the Corruptor by watching the Mythic N'Zoth Complexity Limit guide.
Please note that the corresponding Cutting Edge: N'Zoth the Corruptor
achievement will no longer be available to earn once Shadowlands goes live.As these instances are both Mythic difficulty, we expect defeating Mythic Jaina Proudmoore and Mythic N'Zoth will still require a fair amount of coordination to defeat in Shadowlands
—so if you want either of these mounts, you may want to consider taking advantage of the guaranteed drop rate.
